This is my first laptop as I have a much large desktop HP which was my first computer and it is less than two years old. I researched all laptops because I wanted to get either a laptop or a smartphone to stay in contact with service providers and financial information while I am away from home for extended periods of time. I picked a laptop because they have built-in WiFi and WiFi is available everywhere now, then I picked an HP because I love their products and reliability. Setting up this computer took 5 minutes, then started in using it everywhere including libraries, McDonalds, and the local college campuses and it performs better than I had expected. The video is excellent, I use stereo headphones and the audio is awesome, and all features are super easy to use. This computer will do ANYTHING and is a far superior solution to a smartphone for us old retired people. I would recommend a carrying case or backpack for this and you will have communications wherever you go and, because of the built-in WiFi, operating expenses are ZERO! Matter of fact, if you want to use this computer for exercise, get a backpack (Walmart has them for this size computer) and WALK to your nearest McDonalds, Library, College campus, or any other WiFi area, then use the computer while drinking coffee, reading (Audio is awesome for music!), or just people watching.
